Blue Sausage Infant - Egg


Published December 14, 2008


Washington DC native Chester Hawkins has peformed as BLUE SAUSAGE INFANT
since 1986, combining elements of psychedelia, brutalist noise, tribal
beats, circular krautrock riffing, and bleak ambience. Instrumentation
involves a mix of electronics and organics: Everything from digital synths
to scrap aluminum and electric toothbrushes. The idea is to induce trance
states by any means necessary.

"Egg" was recorded live on 14dec08 at the Pyramid Atlantic in Silver
Spring, Maryland. The date of the performance marked the tenth anniversary
of the death of longtime collaborator and close friend Jhan Dean Egg
(a.k.a. Haunted Toilet).

The performance was something of a ritual to conjure the energy of the
live collaborations that BSI and Haunted Toilet enjoyed in the 1980s and
90s. In that respect it was a mad success: long passages of distorted,
pounding rhythms and stabby electronics with swooning waves of vertigo
trance drones.

This release contains the full live set without overdubs, and is dedicated
to Jhan and Zen Hospice, San Francisco. For further updates on BSI
